Quick Hits

What's up gang!

I have absolutely nothing to report except that I've been volunteering at a food bank and cracking out on Spinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. Seriously... that's it. Here are some quick hits.

1) Lifehacker has a post on the great and unheralded summer treat, the chocolate covered frozen banana. Recipe included.

2) Not that I would recommend that anyone does this, but here's an instructional video on how to make a flash grenade.

3) The 12 Greatest Video Games to Play on the Toilet.

4) 20 Garden Veggies That Could Each Save You $25 or More (Including One Worth $600).

5) 3 Beginner Computer Tips That Are Often Neglected.

6) The Acadamy people have decided to extend the number of films that can be nominated for Best Picture to 10. 10 seems high. This is how they did it in the old days, and that was fine and dandy, but films were better back then (have a look at the quality of films nominated in 1939 and shudder). If you have films like Crash and Slumdog Millionaire actually winning the award, how in the world are you going to find nine others? You're going to end up rounding out the list with Harold and Kumar, for Pete's sake.

7) Debunking Canadian health care myths (this just in... it's awesome).

8) The Sixers are going back to their old school logo and unis. I'm ALL for that. Next up? The Chargers and the Jays please.

9) If you need help cleaning up a photo on your computer, be careful which forum you go to for help. Or this might happen.

10) The 13 Most Unintentionally Disturbing Children's Toys.

11) You play a lot of PS3/Xbox360 games and have become addicted to trophies, go to for a comprehensive list of game achievements.

12) A new website called is a great tool to help you see the errors of your ways in writing.

13) Here are the movies out on DVD tomorrow (don't get excited):

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li
12 Rounds
Two Lovers
Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience
Dark Streets

Let's have a little 70s funk shall we? Here's Marvin's Groove by B.W. Souls.
